Draft to taster. Looks good; a cloudy orange with sticky white lacing. Smells and tastes solid; a blend of citrus and bitter hops with nice balance and a good mouthfeel. A solid example of the style. drowland (8676) - Georgia, USA - AUG 17, 2012
8/11/12. GTMW. Dark orange pour with a nice khaki head. The aroma shows maltiness, caramel, and a balanced dose of smooth, citrusy hops. Balanced flavor as well with caramel and maltiness that finishes dry and smooth with some more citrusy hops. Not bad. SudsMcDuff (8429) - .....Manchester United.........., Texas, USA - APR 28, 2016

16 ounce can. Nice carbonated pour. Like Cut Throat, malty. Big malt presence. Some citrus. Bit of sweetness that gets a little coying. Overall, decent and drinkable for this particular take on the IPA. TaktikMTL (7798) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 19, 2013

Sampled from a 16 oz can this beer poured a bright orange-amber color with a medium sized soapy orange-white head that faded and left minimal lacing. The aroma was strong floral hops - almost gritty and leafy. The flavor was bitter with a strong floral and fruity hop presence and a tangy caramel undertone. Long leafy floral and fruity hop finish. Medium body. Solid. Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 17, 2012
Pint-size can. Poured medium orangey-peach with a sticky off-white head. The aroma picked up blood orange, earth, and pine hoppage over biscuit, bready, and honey sweetness.. much more lovely orange as it warmed up. The flavor found fruity notes plus some honey at the core.. moderate bitterness at most around, with orange and pineapple leading.. finished with more citrus over toffee and caramel malts. Light-medium bodied with moderate carbonation on the palate.. OK feel and flow.. solid. AirForceHops (7238) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 27, 2013
Draft, Portsmouth Brewery’s guest tap. Has an orange / gold color with thin quickly vanishing head. Nose is floral with hints of citrus and caramel malt. Flavor is me is about average for a standard IPA. Flavor is caramel sweetness, light pine, plenty of floral hops. After the sip I get a lightly lingering grassy note to go with the floral hops. Maybe I have become jaded by huge Imperial brews because this just didn’t stand out to me at all. NOTHING wrong with it, very drinkable but it get lost in my memory of hundreds of IPA’s.
